INTRODUCTION AND WARNINGS
INTRODUCTION
This manual is a guide to the efficient use of the machine and also contains practical information concerning the
functioning, adjustments and user maintenance of your new scrubber/drier. Your machine has been designed and
constructed to ensure maximum performarnce and ease of operation in a wide variety of applications. Before delivery, the
machine has been tested in our factory and by our distributor to ensure that it is delivered to you in perfect condition. To
maintain the machine in this condition and guarantee functioning without problems, it is essential that the periodic
maintenance operations indicated in this manual are properly carried out. Before using the machine, carefully read this
manual and keep it within easy reach for your future reference. Indications of “LEFT” and “RIGHT” are as seen from the
operator position. If you should need any further information concerning the machine, please do not hesitate to contact
either Electrolux Euroclean or our local distributor.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
The rules below have to be followed carefully in order to
avoid damages to the operator and to the machine.
- Read the labels carefully on the machine; Do not cover
them for any reason and replace them immediately if
damaged.
- The socket for the power supply must be fitted with a
standard earthing (ground) system.
- With the brushes in working position, avoid touching or
passing over the mains cable. Avoid damaging by
squashing, bending or stressing.
- Where there is damage to the mains cable, stop the
machine, take off the plug from the mains system, and
replace the damaged cable immediately by calling the
Electrolux Service department.
- Do not mix different detergents, avoiding harmful odours.
- Do not place any liquid containers onto the machine.
- The storage temperature has to be between +15°C and +
55°C.
- The perfect operating temperature should be between 0°
C and 40° C.
- The humidity should be between 30 and 95%.
- Do not use the machine in explosive atmosphere.
- Do not use the machine as a means of transport.
- Do not use acid solutions which could damage the
machine.
- Avoid working with the brushes when the machine stands
still, in order to prevent floor damages.
- Do not vacuum iflammable liquids.
- In case of fire, use a powder extinguisher. Do not use
water.
- Do not strike shelvings or scaffoldings, where there is
danger of falling objects.
- Adapt the utilization speed to the adhesion conditions.
- Do not exceed over the limit gradient stated, to avoid
conditions of instability (2% max).
- The machine has to carry out simultaneously the
operations of washing and drying. Different operations
have to be carried out in areas which are not permitted
for the passage of non employed staff. Signal the areas
of moist floors with suitable signs.
- If the machine does not work properly, check by
conducting simple maintenance procedures. Otherwise,
it is better to ask for technical service.
-Where parts are required, ask for ORIGINAL spare parts
to an agent and/or to an authorized dealer.
- For any maintenance operation take off the power supply
from the machine.
- Do not take off the pieces which require the use of tools
to be removed.
- Do not wash the machine with direct water jets or with
high water pressure not with corrosive material.
- Every 200 working hours have a machine check through
a service department.
- The machine should not be abandoned, because of the
presence of toxic-harmful materials (batteries, oil etc.).
This disposal must be subject to the rules which provide
for its scrapping in appropiate centres.
- The machine does not cause any harmful vibrations.
MODIFICATIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS
Electrolux Euroclean aim toward continuous improvement of its machines and reserves the right to carry out modifications
and improvements whenever necessary without being obliged to update machines which have been sold previously.
SAFETY
You too can avoid accidents.
No accident prevention programme is effective without the total co-operation of the person directly responsible for the
functioning of the machine. The majority of accidents which may occur either during work or transferring the machine from
site to site are caused by the non-observance of the most elementary safety rules. An alert and cautious operator is the best
guarantee against accidents and is more effective than any other part of an accident prevention programme.
The machine must be switched off and disconnected from either its battery or mains supply before any servicing or
adjustment of operational parts be carried out. Ensure that any assistant is clear of the machine and that covers are closed
before switching on.

Special care should be taken
when handling battery liquid
as it is corrosive. If it should
come into contact with skin
or eyes, wash abundantly
with water and consult a
doctor.
Recharge batteries when necessary with a
specific battery charger.
If the batteries are of the wet type open all the
battery caps before starting the recharge.
The recarge must be done in a well ventilated
area.

CLEANING OR REPLACING THE BRUSHES
PREPARATION FOR USE
To replace the brushes (or to clean them) carry out
the following sequence of operations:
Partially unscrew the two middle levers on the
squeegee. Push the squeegee into the locating
lugs as illustrated and fully tighten the hand-levers.
(Pull the lever up to disingage it and make its
rotation free).
The machine must be switched on but all functions
switched off; it means that the squeegee must be
lifted.
Raise the brush unit by pressing down the relevant
pedal and latching it in its lowest position.
A
Press the brush release push button A momentarily
(1 or 2 seconds) and the brushes will be unloaded
from the machine.
ON
OFF
Push the coiled end of the squeegee hose fully
home onto the tubular spigot in the centre of the
squeegee.
Move the machine backward by rolling the drive
control thumb wheels rearward until the brushes
are visible in front of the machine.
(pull the machine that is not equipped with the
drive motor).
Clean carefully the three pins of each brush to
keep efficient the Click ON/Click OFF function.
Push the straight end of the squeegee hose onto
the tank inlet pipe which protrudes through a slot
in the rear panel.
To mount the new brushes see the “Preparation for
use” at page 10.

PREPARATION FOR USE
SCRUBBING AND DRYING OPERATION
For models working with batteries follow the
instructions below, whereas in the case of mains
operated models the transformer (or mains unit)
has already been placed inside the machine and
needs no further installation.
The batteries are supplied without liquid, therefore
they must be filled up with the appropriate acid
solution (concentration greater than 30%) before
they can be used.
Take special care when handling the acid
solution as it is corrosive. If it should
come into contact with skin or eyes,
wash abundantly with water and consult
a doctor.
Remove the cap from the hose unscrewing the
knob and empty the tank.
The AW445, AW445 T and AW455 T
models use two 12 Volt batteries connected
in series.
The AW465 and AW475 models use four 6
Volt batteries connected in series. Please study
the applicable illustration then fit the batteries
and connect the supplied links as indicated.
When the battery set has been properly charged
plug the battery socket into the machine as
shown. Lower the tank unit to safely cover
exposed working parts.
+
There is a water level sensor also in the tank for
the clean water (A).
When the tank is going to be empty the red light
B will turn-on; 80 seconds later the automatic
switch “off” of the water flow (electrovalves and
water pump) will occur and a beep will be
heared.

SCRUBBING AND DRYING OPERATION
PREPARATION FOR USE
After filling the batteries must stand for at least 1
hour and then they must be filled up if necessary.
After one further hour the batteries must be
recharged: remove the battery caps during the
recharge operation.
The new batteries will gradually “run in “ and will
increase their capacity.
The maximum capacity will be achieved in about
10 charge/discharge cycles.
Also the tilting of the squeegee can be adjusted
by means of the dedicated knob, in order to
improve the drying capability of the machine.
Move the machine slowly forward, and adjust the
squeegee pressure and tilting controls until the lips
bend over evenly as illustrated below.
TRAVEL DIRECTION
When necessary the batteries must be charged
using an appropriate battery charger. Remove the
battery caps during the charging operation.
FLOOR LEVEL
The lips must be replaced when they become
feather edged or torn.
When the recovery tank (dirty water) will be filled
the red light A will turn “on”; within 5 seconds the
automatic switch-off of the suction motor will also
occur.
water
level sensor
Check that the Volt and Hertz
reading of the mains supply
correspond to those of the battery
charger.
For further information about battery
maintenance see also the relevant
paragraph.

make the forward displacement of the machine
easyer. On the same model the “AUTOPOWEROFF”/“AUTOPOWER-ON” function is not
available.
The following adjustments can be done on the
machine: increase or reduction of the pressure of
the brushes on the floor by means of the
dedicated rotating knob: the required pressure
will depend on the kind of floor and dirt to be
scrubbed.
Drop the brushes roughly side by side in front of
the machine; the actual position does not matter.
NOTE: Set the pressure to the minimum possible
value, consistantly with the kind of dirt to be
cleaned: this will increase the battery working
time.

OFF
Switch the machine on by turning the key switch a
quarter of turn clockwise. Wait momentarily until
the multifunction display lights showing the
battery voltage.
Increase or reduce of the pressure of the

Drive the machine forward by holding the handgrips, then rolling the thumb wheels forward until
the machine moves completely over the brushes.
To stop release the thumb wheels and they will
return to a neutral position. This will ensure the
brushes are fully located under the drive plates.
NOTE: for the models without traction the
machine must be pushed over the brush.
Pull down the squeegee to the floor by lifting the
dedicated lever; the automatic switch-on of the
suction motor will also occur.
Lower the brush unit by pushing the pedal to the

SCRUBBING AND DRYING OPERATION
A
The height of the handle can be adjusted using
the dedicate knob A.
B
The speed range can be selected by means of
switch B.
Switch the machine “on” by turning the key in the
master key-switch a quarter turn clockwise.
Open the tank lid.
Fill the left tank with water to about 75mm (3”)
from the top edge then add the scrubbing
detergent in a quantity to make a dilution
according to its instruction.
Too strong a mix wastes detergent, too weak a
mix will not work efficiently.
The machine is now ready for use; so move off to
the site to be cleaned.

Lower the brushes by pushing the relevant pedal
to the right to unlatch it and bring it to the upper
position: the brush motors, the electrovalves and
the water pump will start automatically in a few
seconds.
The relevant green light indicators will turn “on”
on the control panel.
